Trango towers...favorite for paragliding


Rocks near Baltoro glacier

near Pak-China border



Ushu Valley



Phandar valley

This forms the largest glacier system outside the polar region. Some of the greatest glaciers like baltoro, siachen meet here


This huge amount of ice is known as "snow lake"


Shunter lake


Nanga Parbat("naked mountain" coz its soo steep near its top that snow doenst hold on leaving the top exposed)....also known as "the killer mountain". Hermann Buhl is buried here.

Beautiful pictures! Is it possible to have a safe travel over there?
No.. they are cannibals ; they will eat you up. :lol:


Offcourse its safe. Well if you were referring to the people there, yes they are very nice and welcoming people.

If you mean the mountains, well that depends on your physical abilities and stamina as well as experience. In general, upto 4000m, if you in good health its ok... from 4000m to 5000m depends on the track you have chosen and above 5000m needs some mountaineering skills and familiarity with equipments. The snow lake, and areas beyond base camps also need some prior experience and a good local guide because of cravesses in the glaciers.


And for those fox news ridden skeptical minds, this is faaaaar away from afghanistan and tribal areas. Most of these areas are towards the border with china, but well inside pakistan.

My personal best is the Nanga Parbat.

Damn...its soo beautiful and that is the closes you get to a 8000m without actually intending to cilmb it and without any mountaineering skill or equipment needed.

Its a long tiring hike upto the place called ' fairy meadows (shown above)' but you are really glad you did. Next morning you can walk ( 5hrs one side) to the base camp and see some breath-taking views of this mountain, and you know why it is called the killer mountain. Its a sheer 5000m steep.

Mind you it can get really cold and you can even experience snowfall when the rest of the county( as close as 100 kms away) may have temperature of 47°C.

Central Asia is probably the most underrated part of globe when it comes to natural scenery - the views are simply breathtaking.

Are there any photos of the Hunza Valley and Mount Rakaposhi?

No man, I have taken some of the pics personally, and some are from friends or from the net. No way, photoshop. It is amazing!!

Still in doubt? go to lonelyplanet website and check photos for yourself.

The nearest big city is Muzaffarabad or Islamabad. There are towns with small airports though.
